Trying the same thing over and over, yet expecting a different result.
Darrell! You are so good at putting complex dynamics and history into concise and engaging prose. I hope everyone reads this, and supports more homes and shelter beds in San Francisco, as quickly as possible.
Best summary of the homeless problem that I have ever seen. Thank you Darrell.
Thank you for not assuming that history began in 1990, as so many people seem to do. Honestly, people were complaining about the hippies that were homeless and quasi-homeless back in the 1960s, and I'm betting the beatniks of the 1950s got some grief too. Before that, well, I can't rely on my own memory and I've have to go dig up back issues of the Chronicle.
